...some of it anyway...
A couple of days ago someone asked me what I look for when I add details to my dolls house. I think probably what I look for most are style, colour, shape and authenticity. These all have to fit the bigger picture of course.
The photos above are from the bedroom in my canal house. The room, although modern, has 'original' decorations from around 1750, is very feminine and has a pink and cream/ warm grey colour scheme.
In the first photo you can see a bit of authenticity coming in. The candlestick is a 1750 design. The candle seems to have been used as the wick is black and there are drips along the side of the candle.
In the second photo you can see that the twisted shape of the vase is repeated in both the candlestick and the perfume bottle.
The colour scheme is picked up in the flowers, the wall covering and the embroidery on the wall. The pink is counterbalanced by a few splashes of green.
To make it all a little bit more interesting I have added something which is the opposite of the bedroom theme: modern, black and male, an electric razor (by ULUS miniatures).
